It is kind of confirmed that Sherlock Season 5 is in works as people in a cafe have heard the cast talking about the next installment of Sherlock in works. Here is the main reason why BBC is delaying Sherlock Season 5 release and the latest updates on the show.
Sherlock Season 5 Delay Reason Explained
Sherlock Season 5 release should have happened by now but the makers BBC studios are busy in some other projects. Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat are working on a new series, “Dracula” for BBC Network instead of Sherlock’s fifth season. Both the showrunners are busy in certain other projects and until they greenlight the next installment of Sherlock, nothing much can be said about it.
